My wifes rear wiper on her estate, does this. When I was looking for a repair I found the following site. Might be of some relevance to someone?  I know it doesn't mention Omega, but they must be nearly the same inside. http://www.vauxhallownersnetwork.co.uk/index.php?threads/astra-how2-to-fix-astra-vectra-zafira-wiper-motor-parking-fault.166111/

I had this problem and it seemed to sort itself, only to return a week or so later , i managed to cure problem by changing big yellow relay under bonnet

Hi Swordfish, can you tell us what it was causing the problem, and how you fixed it.

Might give me something I haven't looked at.

Thanks

If you mean the front screen wipers, it's usually as I linked to, caused by wipers being switched on while they're still frozen to the screen.
